I made this dress out of a summery cotton seersucker. The fabric was recently on sale for $1.99, so I figured it to be a safe way to test out a possible dress pattern for an upcoming wedding. Since cutting this out I have changed my plan but I am very pleased with the fit after very little alteration to the pattern. I was extra pleased when I was in a hurry to find a hook and eye and instead found the perfect little button. This halter style was also being tested for nursing access which proves to be very useful especially when balanced with the style quotient. May make more for summer wardrobe.
